It has been 10 years since the Obama administration issued an executive order to establish Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to protect unauthorized immigrants who relocated to the United States from deportation and having access to work permits.
Fast forward 10 years, thousands of DACA recipients still face uncertainties on their path to receiving citizenship in the United States on the mark of the 10th anniversary on June 15th, 2022. Many recipients fear that their protections will soon be terminated due to the uncertainties created by Congress failing to create a direct pathway to citizenship. Recipients also face many questions and concerns due to not determining if they will be able to keep their job or be deported alongside their families.
Many dreamers question what the next 10 years will look like? The termination of DACA will have a severe impact on its community but many dreamers will continue to fight to reach a pathway to citizenship.
